about

I wrote this song for my first nephew, Dylan!

lyrics

He'll grow up to be a miller
If such things will still exist

And if his daddy is out of luck
He'll be on horseback by the age of six

Little Boy, little boy, little boy, little boy
Little lump on my sister's tum
Little boy, little boy, little boy little boy
little lump on my sister's tum

He might grow up to be an astronaut
Play the trumpet in the town fanfare
He might grow up to be a president
He'll fly to mars and breathe the air

Little Boy, little boy, little boy, little boy
Little lump on my sister's tum
Little boy, little boy, little boy little boy
little lump on my sister's tum

There's a world for you out there
A world full of hopes and dreams
there's a world for you out there
A world, just for you

Little Boy, little boy, little boy, little boy
Little lump on my sister's tum
Little boy, little boy, little boy little boy
little lump on my sister's tum

He'll be taller than me
By the age of twelve
He'll be speaking Chinese
When the world has gone to hell

Little Boy, little boy, little boy, little boy
Little lump on my sister's tum
Little boy, little boy, little boy little boy
little lump on my sister's tum

There's a world for you out there
A world full of hopes and dreams
there's a world for you out there
A world, just for you

Little Dylan at the mill with mom and daddy on the sill
With laughter all around and sunshine on your face
Fight imaginary villains, little Dylan, little Dylan
Little lump on my sister’s tum

There's a world for you out there
A world full of hopes and dreams
there's a world for you out there
A world, just for you
Little Boy
